While other organizations provide veterans with an escape from reality, The Eden Project provides veterans with the tools to deal with reality.
No one knows veterans like other veterans. Dozens of studies have been conducted over the past several years and all indicated the same thing; peer groups are one of the most effective means for a person to reconnect to themselves, their family and their community.
The PHOE3NIX FORCE® is our proprietary peer group for veterans. Our concept embodies the “rise out of the ashes” spirit of a warrior with the emphasis on our 3 Es of - Engaging, Empowering, Encouraging each other. Each peer group is made up of 6 to 8 warriors. Our groups focus on developing positive thinking habits, being mindful, developing personal strengths, building closer relationships with others, learning to appreciate life, being open to new possibilities and deepening their spiritual development.
We do this in a safe, trusting environment of other veterans while serving the community and building lasting bonds with other warriors.
Couples’ “Date Nights”
Our date nights are designed to create special moments and memories that couples need to connect and maintain strong bonds. We offer a variety of different dates that include massage, yoga, cooking, arts and crafts, and community service while discussing topics like communication skills, intimacy, personality styles, and a few others. Whether separated from the service recently or many years ago every military veteran couple is welcome. Couples who attend our date nights are looking to step away from their busy routine of daily life for a few hours and reconnect with their spouse. All of our dates are fun, educational, and packed with activities for couples who want to keep their marriages full of life and love and are led by a dynamic marriage professional.
Couples join our date nights and meet other couples who want to rebuild or strengthen their relationships while deepening their own.
Our philosophy is to create this holistic, multi-disciplinary support network in each community to facilitate reintegration for warriors and their families. While there are many programs designed to provide career guidance and job placement to veterans, there are no programs currently addressing the fundamental issues of reintegration or career retention. Our focus is on these two areas.
